Shichi Go San

We can see children who put on Kimono in November. There is a celebration for 3,5 and 7 years old children on November 15. Japanese Shichi is number seven, Go is number five and San is number three.
The parents go to main their shrine with children to celebrate them as a custom.
They take a lot of pictures for their lovely children.
The children bring special candy, Chitose- ame. It is white and red candy. For Japanese white and red are lucky colors. Our national flag is white and red. We usually use 2 colors for other lucky items. Especially girls make up lightly and dress up their hair as Japanese hair style. The figure of children is very heartwarming and cute.
I have my pictures in the celebration and it was memorable day for me.
Today is my birthday
